one of your left indicators(front or back) may have a loose connection with the bulb. Check these as one globe "out" will make the other link erraticly. This is to let you know that one globe is out or has a bad connection

Why would you want the blinker faster. They should blink at factory specs.

my 2000 Chevy Van's left turn signal is clicking erratically. What should I do? Check your indicator light bulbs as one may be out. There could be an earthing problem if not the bulb.

your rear bulb is blown - replace the bulb The turn signal blinks fast because the bulb is going out. That is also why the others dont blink.

Buy a "highway" turn signal flasher

If your blinker is blinking at a faster rate than normal, it usually means that one of the bulbs is out. For example, if the left turn signal blinks faster than usual, check either the front or the rear left turn signal. If both turn signals seem okay, check the front left parking light. (this is the front orange light that is on when your headlights are on)

Check your bulbs and your flasher.

This may very well be a problem with your ground connections at that turn signal.

The turn signal flasher is about to die. Buy a new one ... they are cheap, usually under $10

This is a common built in feature that is used to tell the vehicle driver that one of the turn signal bulbs is out.

You either have a bulb burnt out or the turn signal flasher is bad.

If a turn signal does not blink on a 1996 Honda Accord that it is time for it to be changed. To change the bulb and locate the light housing and remove the older light. Replace the light.

AnswerPossible a bad turn signal flasherYou more than likely have a blown bulb. if the flasher was bad the left side indicator on the dash would not blink. do a quick inspection around the car with the left side on and then the right, you will notice which bulb is blown.Hope this helps."85MGM"

The emergency flashers and the signal lights are separate systems. Each has it's own fuse, switch and flasher relay. If your turn signals light up but don't blink I would blame the signal flasher relay.

That can happen when there is a bad ground to one of the lights.

Maybe a short somewhere...did you replace the flasher unit? No - it was blinking spuradically(?) - now I have to blink it manually and it won't blink at all with lights on.
